Second of the moulds from my birthday, I bring you the gem collection. My friend, upon giving me my moulds had said she was excited to see what I would come up with. Well the bamboo one was easy, it allowed me to do detail work which is fun and looks good. For gems though, what do you do?
Well I did it a little differently for each one (kinda feels like the Three Bears, except none of these are just right).
To give it some contrast and for fun, I tried marbling. Of course, I forgot, do you pour the clear and then the opaque, or is it the other way round? I poured clear first and although I didn't think much of the effects at first, under the camera, it looked better than I originally thought.
|Thought I'd ry and get creative with the back as well, but it looks like an Easter egg gone wrong.|
That of course is kinda boring. I mean it's not like it's a real ruby and would be worth a gazillion dollars or anything so time to make things sparkle.
Adding glitter to this last one made it look kinda celestial, which is cool by me. And that made me think, so how would it look in another context?
All gems are scented with BB's Bordeaux Blend (to stick with the grown up theme). I would love to hear suggestions on how to make these soaps more outstanding.
Have a great week!
